    I received this Sony Vaio PCV-V200G (All-in-One) PC to fix.
    The O/S "XP Home" had crashed and the owner stated that he couldn't get to the recovery partition to fix it so he just wanted it re-installed another way.
    Well here comes my problem............
    I stick in my "XP Home Edition" CD and proceed to re-install and when I get to
    the "Press Enter" to install part the keyboard doesn't work. I tried three!!
    He never gave me the original "wireless" keyboard that comes with this system
    so I'm using 3 spares I have lying around.
    By the way, I come to find out the original O/S & "C" drive had been deleted or formated
    before I got the system to fix.
    Anyway, I need to find out if anyone knows how to get this or any other keyboards
    to work????????
    I really need to get this system fixed bad and fast!!

    I have seen some computers that use USB Keyboards that must have the keyboard they shipped with to work, at least intially. I'd ask for the original keyboard and see what happens.

    Or there could be an issue with the file system on the hard drive, or a problem with the drive itself, and it locks up at that point. Test the hard drive or try another drive.
